This is a lyric from one of my favorite songs in the world, God Bless the Child by Billie Holiday. The idea behind the song came from an argument with her mother about money and her mom told her "God bless the child that's got his own". The song is a jab at the good will of people and how there are always stipulations on how much help someone can give and how much individuals can take when asking for assistance. It's a cold world and you gotta have the strength to keep pushing during the hard times and the courage to ask for help when you need it. Just remember, nobody will do for you, like you.
